When President Donald Trump needs a plan sometimes it comes to him Yeezy Peasy.
Back in 2015 Kanye West stated at the MTV Music Awards that he would run for President of the United States in 2020. Five years later his good friend Donald Trump is President and the numbers don’t look so “bigly” for his reelection campaign. So how would you try to pull away votes from your opponent Joe Biden. Best thing to do is target those who overwhelmingly identify as Democrats (and wouldn’t be voting for Trump anyway) such as Millennials and African Americans by given them another option. Which led to this announcement from West this week:
Obviously Kanye is joking and isn’t running because IMO there is no way he can get enough boots on the ground to get on the ballot as a third party candidate (unless he plans only write-in). But conspiracy theorists are talking.
